If so, how does it work?I'm not talking about a 3 hour class...I'm talking about an actual class like math, science, english, gym...etc... Thanks!See More

"I use his as an intro to exponentials.  I really wish there was a site like this one when I was a first year teacher. If you have a lesson idea that you like make sure you share it with the rest of our community:)"

"Hi Kristy, Great add on of the real word questions to the original document.  I feel that when students make these extrapolations on their own without our "hand holding," truly impactful learning is taking place.  I'm so…"

"I love this idea!  I plan to use it as soon as I can.  We just had Rachel's Challenge visit our school and this would be a wonderful way to show the students how easy it is to reach many and to inspire!"

"This site is great.  If you are looking for some trig ideas, be sure to view the GI Joe clip about "spherical trig."  Clip uses 3D projection to show angles being labeled with Greek letters.  Again, great site!"
